According to Inspector Peggy DeLean of the Fairfax County Department of Code Compliance, hoarders have been around since the 14th century.
DeLean said that when inspectors find a hoarder property in noncompliance, they write up violations and give owners a reasonable deadline to address them.
DeLean cited cases in which piles of trash in homes were five to six feet tall throughout a home, preventing the residents from going up stairs or even entering certain rooms. “We had one case in which a woman said she had not been into her kitchen in at least five years because she couldn’t get into it,” she said. “What we often discover in cases like that is that there are water leaks or even gas leaks that have not been addressed for years, causing all sorts of health hazards.”
